REHOGAR is a collective exhibition and annual gathering about open design and reuse/upcycling as tools for social transformation, where the use of resources, respect for people and the environment are key issues.

In its tenth edition, REHOGAR displays an ecosystem of practices and objects that foment change in our current habits of production and consumption.

REHOGAR presents a range of different proposals in complexity and scale of application, but all have in common that they have been designed to awaken our sensitivity and instigate the change in our ways of living and relating. In its own way, each one opens and strengthens pathways towards greater social and environmental justice.

Real projects with the explicit will to provide everyday solutions, and whose value goes beyond the materiality and application of the exhibited objects. More than 40 projects from around the world that move us away from the mercantilist culture of throwaway, and bring us closer to a collective consciousness based on using, transforming and caring.




In these times of overinformation REHOGAR proposes ArchivOS, a documentation space with a selection of manuals and recipes of open source projects that we have amplified during these years, and some publications that have accompanied us in these ten editions.

A look back


We celebrate the tenth edition of REHOGAR. So this year we have complemented the exhibition and activities with a narrative of the process that has extended over a decade, which has made us grow and feel accompanied. We want to recognize the context, individuals, partnerships and the challenges we have been finding throughout this journey. In its course, REHOGAR has exhibited more than 490 national and international proposals, weaving a solid network of people, professionals and communities that activate open and replicable transformation processes from new economic, social and environmental paradigms.



REHOGAR is also a space for reflection, where questions about the relevance to evolve towards this kind of behaviours and ways to doing can be shared.

In parallel with the exhibition a series of activities will be held, with the aim of disseminating and exploring the theoretical framework; experiencing first-hand and putting into practice some of the exhibited solutions and ideas; and creating spaces for remixing and entertainment that favour the generation and strengthening of collaborative networks.



From September 21 to October 28, 2017, REHOGAR X will take place at Espai Zero, a meeting area at Fabra i Coats – Art Factory and Contemporary Art Centre of Barcelona.
